In Mythika: Almost alien, deep sea serpents that were probably created by the Siyokoy from normal Sea Serpents. These sea creatures can fly through the air and they are widely known as the Eclipse Serpents as when they appear all light will perish and darkness arrives. They are constantly dripping an oil-like substance that behaves much like living shadows that search for light-sources to block out, when a Bakunawa approaches a coastal town, all lights will dim and eventually turn into shadow as the living shadows that drip from the Shadow Sea Serpent destroy the light and turn it into pitch black darkness. Bakunawa destroy all types of sources of light, magical light, fire, torches and they instantly kill creatures made from light like the Will o Wisp and Adze.
